Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dreamy Goodness It all started with L'Engle's classic children's tale A Wrinkle in Time. At the time, my curiousity was kindled because L'Engle's masterpiece was instrumental in an old lover's youth and I wished to familiarize myself with this muse of sorts. Years later, I bought A Wrinkle in Time and got hooked. Soon followed A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, and Many Waters. Before I knew it, I was immersed deeply in this fantastic, whimsical, and avant-garde series of children's adventures. It has been several months since my ardent travels through the Murry family's space and time travels concluded yet I feel just as excited as ever. The award-winning L'Engle has encompassed wonder, filial love, and adventure in the series which shall continue to resonate with kids across the globe for generations to come.

Editorial Reviews

"A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT." -Meg Cabot on A Wrinkle in Time"A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place." -Cory Doctorow on A Wrinkle in Time"A suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment." -School Library Journal, starred review on A Wind in the Door"Madeleine L'Engle mixes classical theology, contemporary family life, and futuristic science fiction to make a completely convincing tale that should put under its spell both readers familiar with the Murrys and those meeting them for the first time." -The New York Times Book Review on A Wind in the Door"An intricately woven fantasy ... Theme is L'Engle's greatest forte, and once again she proves this with a compelling plot, rich in style that vibrates with provocative thoughts on universal love, individual caring, and the need for the joy in living." -Booklist, starred review on A Swiftly Tilting Planet"This will be enjoyed for its suspense and humor as well as its other levels of meaning." -Kirkus Reviews on Many Waters"L'Engle blends speculative fiction with biblical theology to create another provocative spellbinding tale." -Philadelphia Inquirer on Many Waters"L'Engle has again achieved the award-winning style of A Wrinkle in Time ... Highly recommended." -VOYA on An Acceptable Time
